Ants on a Log
by Randy Travis



Ants on a log
Floatin' down a river
Runnin' around
But not gettin' anywhere
Powersteerin' wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

I got an uncle
He plays a game
Can't win it
He's got a mold
Tries to fit everybody else in it
When's he gonna learn he's bangin' his head on the wall?
He ain't gonna change
And he looks at me strange when I tell him

We're all just ants on a log
Floatin' down a river
Runnin' around
But not gettin' anywhere
Powersteerin' wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

We all know people
We yella t the cars and the traffic
Folks in a hurry
Life's full of heartache and havoc
I finally learned how to lay back and let life happen
I just image
The angels up in heaven
Lookin' down at us and laughin'

At ants on a log
Floatin' down a river
Runnin' around
But not gettin' anywhere
Powersteerin' wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

And just about the time you think
You're rollin' in clover
Along comes a rabbit
And the world tips over

Ants on a log
Floatin' down a river
Runnin' around
But not gettin' anywhere
Power steer wheels
Just ain't connected
And we can't jump off like flees on a dog
Can't fly away like flies on a hog
We're really just along for the ride like ants on a log

Yeah we're really just along for the ride like ants on a log
